Synopsis: This month on ‘Lady Baltimore: The Witch Queens’. Firelight witches attack Sofia’s plane and cause a devastating crash. Now Sofia and Imogen must race to meet up with the rest of the survivors before the Hexenkorps witches kill any survivors that may remain.
Picking up from where the action left off last month. Sofia, Imogen, and Rigo’s plane has been forced out of the air by Firefight Witches. They now must travel on foot while keeping a safe distance away from the Hexencorps aka the Nazi Witches. Sofia, Imogen, and Rigo make a run for the town of Cesky Krumlov where the host of Lord Baltimore has been supposedly sighted. But it turns out that a local legend in the town could hold the key to defending the town and Czechoslovakia from Nazi Witches.
Meanwhile, back home at Lady Baltimore’s home. The Warlock assigned to guard the Witch Queen Yelena, but she has other ideas.
Bridgit Connell continues to hit home runs with her artwork, which perfectly picks up on the mood and the pulpiness of this story. The colorwork provided by Michelle Madsen really elevates Connell’s linework. I loved the images of the Hexoncorps attacking Sofia and her people and loved the images of the ghost witches that they manage to raise from their sleep.
I also enjoyed the smaller details in the town of Cesky Krumlov and the details surrounding the shrine of the Gollum, which Sofia and Rigo plan to use in an attack on the Hexancorp.
Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola continue to spin a brilliant story with this adventure. I’m really excited to see how this story will evolve over the next few issues. The two writers have managed to give us some likable characters and some truly awesome villains. I mean how can you not love a good old-fashioned pulp story that gives us Nazi Witches. More of the same, please.
